Burnley leaves Ancelotti's Everton out of Europe

Chris Wood and Dwight McNeil scored the away goals. Calvert Lewin closed the gap. Everton lacked success and Pope supported his team.


Burnley won at Goodison Park (1-2) moved away from the relegation zone and left Carlo Ancelotti's Everton out of the European Premier positions that Manchester City dominate.The Liverpool team, who could not count on the injured Colombian James Rodríguez, and who did not have his compatriot Jerry Mina, substitute, became entangled during the first half hour and then lacked the success to turn the situation around.

Before the opening quarter of an hour, Chris Wood, with a shot from outside the area, beat Jordan Pickford, who had to leave the game before the break injured.

By that time he had already conceded the second, signed by Dwight McNeil after receiving a ball from the Czech Matej Vydra.

Ancelotti's side regained its pulse in the game in minute 32, when Dominic Calvert Lewin beat Nick Pope to take advantage of a Tom Davies pass.It was just before half-time that Pickford was injured while bidding for a split ball with Icelandic Johann Gudmunsson. The Portuguese Joao Virginia took his place to debut with the 'toffees'.

In the second half the scoreboard did not move. Everton lacked success and Pope supported his team. Ancelotti's team could not avoid their second defeat in a row to be two points behind West Ham, which marks the European zone. Burnley, who had gone five games without winning, are moving away from relegation.
